Teachers as Thinkers 2.0: Trust-Play-Annotate-Imagine-Curate
An Advanced Institute of WPWP’s Summer Institute for Teachers
co-taught by Melissa Butler and Michelle King
This week-long course, inspired by Paulo Freire’s “reading and writing the word and the world,” is for educators who want to co-create learning about what, how, and why we teach. We will explore concepts of trust-play-annotate-imagine-curate through reading, writing, moving, improvising, creating, noticing, reflecting, and being.
Throughout the week, educators will have an opportunity to grapple with a core question of practice, be in dialogue with others to find new questions, and enrich our overall collective inquiries.
The course is for any educator who has been part of the Summer Institute for Teachers (including those registered for SIT 2019) and for other educators whose practice or aspirations align with the central tenants of the National Writing Project (www.nwp.org).
Application deadline: May 20
1 Graduate credit from University of Pittsburgh School of Education is available for the course.
